Genesis 6

edited December 1969 in Faith Issues
1. What does v. 4 mean? Is it referring to believers who marry non-believers? What is the significance of the word 'giant' and why does it carry such a negative connotation?

"There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown."

2. God is All-Knowing and He created the world, knowing the outcome. Why, then, did he see the wickedness and become upset, and regret that He created the world?

"Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the Lord was sorry that he had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart." (v. 5-6)

3. Everything that God does is precise and has meaning, so are the numbers and measurements significant in the following verse?

"And this is how you shall make it: the length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits , its width fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits." (v. 15)
